You want phosphate-free anti-freeze, but you can get that at any car  
parts store -- nothing special.  I *really* wouldn't run just water in  
the car.

I never changed transmission fluid on the car voluntarily, except when  
I had some work done on the transmission itself.

If you commute to Mill Valley, you presumably pass Point Richmond  
often.  I use Autopoint Motors regularly, and I trust Art Butradee,  
the owner.  He worked on my 200 whenever I didn't have the time  
myself.  The number is (510) 232-0000.
